STAT - Reporting from the frontiers of health and medicine

As indicated on the first day of media reporting, the reporting signal pattern did not match SARS or MERS. As healthcare providers, we are mindful of signs and symptoms that prompt us to think of a certain disease. Very much the same is true for how people talk about outbreaks in media and official reporting- this speaks to the discipline of analysis as it pertains to health security. We have to pay attention to both the clinical *and* the reporting features. Local officials have now indicated they ruled out SARS and MERS ( https://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/hong-kong-patients-treated-mystery-disease-68075731 ). We’ll keep an eye on what the final assessment is here- a very interesting case study. James Wilson, MD M2 Medical Intelligence
